    Ghorepani-Chuile: The Day of Up and Down

    April 24, 2019 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Today is day three of five on our Annapurna Area trek. We hiked from Ghorepani (which means ‘Horsewater’ in Nepalese) to Chuile. This morning, Mom and Dad woke up so early to hike about 45 minutes to Poon Hill (3165m), and then back 🏔 . Then we got up and promptly left the guest house an hour and a half after we planned to 🕤 🏠. Once we were on the trail, we were steamrolling along for almost three hours, until we stopped for lunch. After a lunch of momos 🥟, spaghetti 🍝 , French fries 🍟, chipati🍞, eggs 🍳, and vegetable chowmain 🍝🌶, we were back up and running. The second half of our day was a little slower than the first half, but luckily it was mostly downhill. Now we are here at the ‘Hotel Rainbow Attractive’, 🌈, playing cards ♣️♥️♦️♠️
    For most of the day we had a special dog friend named Jeremy hike along beside us (he needed to stop for so many breaks! 😁🐕)

    Up (almost) 2 km in 2 days

    April 23, 2019 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    We started our trek in Nayapul at 1000m elevation. After the first 5 hours, we reached Ulleri at 1900m, where we spent the night - as soon as we got into the tea house, sweaty and tired, the skies opened up with rain and hail! The next morning, we started out for Ghorepani, which we reached by lunchtime - at 2800m elevation, and quite cold! It was a good introduction to how tall the Himalayas are, since we were still completely dwarfed by the mountains around us...Read more

    We missed the sunrise and the crowds...

    April 24, 2019 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Early this morning, Lara and I left our cozy teahouse with Madan, our Nepali guide, for a steep uphill jaunt to Poon Hill. It is a daily ritual for some 300 trekking tourists to catch the sunrise on the Himalayas at this 3200m lookout. Unable to endure another 4am reveille, we opted for a 6:30 start. After a somewhat breathless climb, passing 300 tourists on their way down, we were rewarded with even more breathtaking views of the Annapurna valley. And, to our delight we were almost completely alone at the lookout - a feat not easily achieved on this popular trekking route.Read more

    Nangi Trek 1. Nacht

    December 17, 2016 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Es ist einfach nur großartig! Natur! Natur! Natur!

    Wir sind so begeistert von Nepal! Wir haben eine Agentur gewählt, die fast nur weibliche Guides hat. Die Frauen bekommen dort eine Ausbildung und lernen Englisch, so das sie nicht nur hinter dem Herd stehen müssen.

    Unser Guide heißt Pasang und ist so mega sympathisch...

    Tagsüber können wir im T-Shirt trekken, aber sobald die Sonne weg ist wird es richtig kalt. In der Nacht sind es so um die 0 Grad. Wir schlafen in ganz einfachen Bretterhüttchen, die natürlich nicht isoliert sind. Ein weiteres Mal sind unsteigerbar in unsere Schlafsäcke verliebt, weil wir einfach nicht frieren.

    Nepal ist ein Traum!

    Nangi Trek 2. Nacht

    December 18, 2016 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Unser emotionales Hoch hält weiter an. Eigentlich könnte ich genau das gleiche schreiben, wie beim vorherigen Footprint. Wir fragen uns die ganze Zeit, warum wir Nepal und das Trekken hier nicht schon früher entdeckt haben...

    Danke nochmal an Antje für diese Empfehlung!!
